Nothing beats happy hour after work. Discounted drinks and meeting up with friends are always nice. However, going to a free face skin care event is better. Especially if there is free wine.

Free wellness events are a big score for me. I love trying new skincare products and getting free mini face treatments.

Keep in mind, most face treatments do not have extractions for blackheads. However, they are free and leave your skin feeling refreshed afterwards.

Caudalie free face treatment products
Caudalie launched their new SOS Intense Moisturizing Cream product by having free face treatments in their stores.

Even though, I recently attended the Dermalogica Pop-Up , my skin still felt dry from the season change from winter to spring.

Thus, I checked my five main resources for finding free events, and luckily found the Caudalie #SaveYourSkin Hydration Happy Hour on Eventbrite.

Luckily, Caudalie was offering free mini treatments because they launched their new SOS Intense Moisturizing Cream product. Along with New York, this event was offered in Washington D.C, Miami, and Los Angeles.

Products Used in My Face Treatment

  1. Caudalie Gentle Buffing Cream
  2. Caudalie Micellar Water
  3. Caudalie Grape Water
  4. Caudalie Beauty Elixir Eau De Beaute
  5. Caudalie Premier Cru Serum
  6. Caudalie Premier Cru Eye Cream
  7. Caudalie Moisturizing Mask
  8. Caudalie Vinosource Overnight Recovery Oil
  9. Caudalie VinoSource S.O.S. Intense Moisturizing Cream

Not long after waiting 5 minutes, I was next in line for the 20 minutes face treatment. Furthermore, there were 3 aestheticians working at different stations. Thus, my friend and I managed to get our face treatments done at the same time.

Overall, this was a great event because of the low wait time. In addition, my skin really enjoyed the extra moisture from the products.

Staying fit, eating healthy, and having an active lifestyle are very important to me. Luckily, I have a discount fitness membership though my employer, and I use my gym membership almost every single day.

Since not all of my friends have gym membership, I found it helpful to meet up at free fitness classes. New York City is also a popular travel destination, and it is nice to meet up with friends that visit to a free workout class, instead of dining at a restaurant. It is very beneficial because both my friends and I do not miss our workouts, and our bank accounts thank us as well.

Please see below for the top 2 resources I use to find free fitness classes.

1)Sassy Fit Girl

Sassy Fit Girl usually posts a weekly schedule for free fitness classes and free group runs by Monday/Sunday 3pm EST. Be sure to subscribe to her newsletter and to check her website daily in case additional listings get added.


I wrote about using Eventbrite recently to find free and cheap events, and one of my favorite searches to use is fitness.  I type in fitness and I use the “free” filter to narrow down my search for free fitness classes.

Last Sunday I went to the Sweaty Sundays X Brooklyn Boulders NYC lululemon event, and I was able to go to rock climbing for free. Just for some perspective, a day pass at Brooklyn Boulders is $36, so finding this event was definitely a steal.

How to Attend a Free Wellness Day Retreat (NYC)

We often hear about going elsewhere to wellness retreats, but are we aware that it might be easier to go than we think? It is always great to explore places, but when money and time may be issues, the wellness retreat might be even around the corner.

I wrote recently about how I use different resources to find events, and I was lucky enough to find the Dermalogica Pop-Up event on Facebook. The #ExperienceDermalogica pop-up had interactive art installations, free master classes, facelift skin treatments, and swag bags.

Free Facelift Skin Treatment

I was very intrigued by the “Build your Brand with Cyndi Ramirez: Chillhouse Founder” master class.  Ramirez went over the fundamentals of building a brand visually, and how everything, such as the name, logo, typefaces, colorways, patterns, tagline, and slogan sets a brand apart from the rest. Ramirez also spent time answering individual questions and provided feedback, which is helpful because consultations and attending branding workshops can be expensive.

Branding Class led by Chillhouse Founder Cyndi Ramirez

After attending the branding workshop I was lucky enough to get a free 10 minutes facelift skin treatment. The skincare facelift left me feeling refreshed and glowy and allowed me to try the latest Dermalogica products for free. The normal price for this treatment is valued at $10, and you can schedule an appointment at a Dermalogica location on their website.

I also attended the Skin Health 101 master class, which was about identifying and treating different skin types. One key thing I learned was the difference between sensitive skin and sensitized (reactive) skin.  Sensitized skin is caused by your environment, which can include stress, friction, incorrect product usage, medication, sun, and pollution. On the other hand, sensitive skin is something that you are born with, and symptoms include lower pigment, redness and being prone to asthma and allergies.

List of Free Master Classes at the Pop-Up

Overall this event was great because not only was this event was free, but the speakers were also very knowledgeable. If timed correctly, anyone could have made this a free wellness day retreat, with the branding (motivation) class, (facelift) skin treatment, Skin Health 101 master class (workshop), restorative skin class (yoga), and swag (free gift) bags.

One of the free swag bags I received at the pop-up. I got a total of 3 different gift bags at the event.
